While all paperback copies of Fit to Curl are gone, the book is available as a Kindle ebook on Amazon. It has a few updates, a bit more interactivity than paper and ink provide, and also features interviews Dean has conducted with John over the years. To buy it, go here on Amazon.
With John now chasing a second Olympic gold medal in South Korea with Kaitlyn Lawes in the new Mixed Doubles discipline, we’re hoping to produce a second edition of the book following the Games. We’ll keep you posted!
If you’ve been stuck pursuing some other sport not nearly as great as curling, and you’ve never heard of Fit to Curl, here’s a summary:
Written by 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist John Morris, <em>Fit to Curl</em> is the first sport-specific guide to training for the world’s greatest game. John has seen the game evolve and uses his experiences in the sport and his background in kinesiology and personal training to provide specific training that will make a difference on the ice. No matter what your aspirations might be, whether it’s making a few more shots on League Night or winning national titles, you’ll find programs in this book that will help you improve as a curler and be healthier as a person. Filled with great photos of some of the world’s top players on the ice and in the gym, <em>Fit to Curl</em> also offers insights into nutrition, team dynamics and the mental side of the game. It’s a great book for players of all levels.
We hope you’ll get a Kindle version of our book and we look forward to producing a second edition in the future.
